“Consider it nothing but joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you fall into various trials. Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace]. And let endurance have its perfect result and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfect and completely developed [in your faith], lacking in nothing. Blessed [happy, spiritually prosperous, favored by God] is the man who is steadfast under trial and perseveres when tempted; for when he has passed the test and been approved, he will receive the [victor’s] crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him”.(James 1:2-4, 12 AMP).
“The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, to guide and to shield me], I shall not want. He lets me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still and quiet waters. He refreshes and restores my soul (life); He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the [sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort and console me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You have anointed and refreshed my head with oil; My cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, And I shall dwell forever [throughout all my days] in the house and in the presence of the Lord “. (Psalms 23:1-6 AMP).
Victory is Yours
+Can you imagine if you had quit and given up on life the first time you had what you thought was a major problem. You wouldn’t have made it this far today.
+A winner never quits, and a quitter never wins.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be all of you steadfast, immoveable, always abounding…
+Remember this, Christ died for us so we can live, and while we live it is Christ who is living in us, Galatians 2:20.
+In every situation KNOW this, we are living for (Christ) God, and the life we live is for the constant glorification of Christ (God).
+If we are experiencing defeats we are living for ourselves and not for Christ.
+All who live for Christ live in victory, and all who allows Christ to live through them bring victory to others.
+Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
